Conophytum confusum

The species was only described in 2015 (Bradleya 33) and was found growing just 2 km from C. bachelorum which it resembles in its body form, being flat-topped brown and spotted (see the desheathed heads at the back and left of the photo). The heads are a little smaller than C. bachelorum and it clusters more quickly. However whereas C. bachelorum produces white-centred pink flowers in the spring, this new species produces dark centred C. obscurum-like flowers in late summer.
